Elle Burguez is as multifaceted as they come, with art, music and a great wardrobe under her belt. Her work is pared back, yet incredibly full of joy and meaning; her style abounds in colour and youth. As amateur art fans - and mega colour fans - we had to ask our talented muse a few questions.
How do you approach colour, and then integrate this into your home, your art, and your wardrobe?
I am very drawn to colour. When I try to stick to neutrals whether it’s for my home, art or wardrobe I always add in some colour. Colours can change a mood and make me feel nostalgic or joyful.
What colours are you drawn to most and why?
This changes for me at certain times. At the moment I can’t get enough of turquoise and ocean blues. I think that’s because I am craving a tropical holiday.
How do you define your interior aesthetic and what are the key pieces?
My pieces are a mix of hand-me-downs, natural shades with pops of colour from my or my partners paintings and pieces I find online. I choose things for the way they make me feel for sure. My key pieces for now are my beautiful woollen rug, the art that rotates on the walls and small objects I find in other countries or flea markets. I’m trying to find some new lighting and a special chair to add to my space too!
Where do you find interior inspiration? Are there any specific Instagram accounts you find useful?
I see so many inspiring interiors online for sure.
Do you have any tips for first-time art buyers? And for those hoping to inject a little more fun and frivolity in their home?
I think you should always choose something that you’re drawn to and something that makes you feel good. You will know when you love a work of art. Start by buying a smaller original and then work up to some larger pieces when you know what you’re into. For me, I want my wardrobe, art, jewellery and interior pieces to be loved forever.
To add more fun to your home you can always add colourful objects or vessels that you find in vintage stores or markets to keep things unique and different. Once again, I always just come back to choosing things that make me feel something. You can’t go wrong with a beautiful rug or an elegant lamp to add some vibrancy to your space. I also believe less is more!
